To test that idea, his team collected eelpout from fishermen who inadvertently landed the unwanted species.
Most eelpout broods contain a 50:50 mix of males and females, D.
A cod of around 6lb and a codling of about 3lb were caught from the mouth of the River Wear, while the 14 match anglers managed just a single codling among them, though they added a coalfish, two whiting, six flounder, five rockling and three eelpouts.
